    Default WHY Do You Wear Your Locs?

    I just started my locs 5 days ago and I have been doing some research. I don't want to be one of those people (and I know of A LOT of them) who wear locs without knowing any kind of history on them. Locs are unfamiliar to a lot of people and when they ask me about them, and I know they will, I want to be able to share some knowledge. Digressing, I did some research, and found out a lot of great history about dreadlocks and a the whole True Rastafarian movement and basically the various meanings behind them.

    I decided to start locs, not for any religious meaning, but mostly for convenience, to try something new with my hair, and be part of community that was brave, patient, confident and committed enough to wear locs. I feel like I can learn something about myself as well. I can be a very inpatient person. My whole thing is, how can I overcome my impatience if I don't put myself in a situation the requires patience? What better way to test my patience than to grow locs?! It's only been 5 days, but I'm already really excited for what's to come on this new journey of mine.

    Why do you wear your locs?

    - I love they way they swang
    - Mostly because they're easy in every way.

    There's nothing spiritual or historical behind the reasons I wear my locs.....perhaps in time that will change, but for now, meh.

    Wanted to be natural without having to detangle and I hated combing my hair trying to figure out a decent hair style everyday for work.

    WHY NOT wear locs? Loved them when I had them, plotting a return.

    Started my locs a few weeks ago.

    I think they're beautiful.
    No more detangling and fighting the fro.
    Theyre super cool!

    Natural hair is just for me. When I was a loose nap, it felt right. Now that I am a loc'ed nap it feels right.
